You'll see why Ozzie wants to delay having the house painted until Thorny is out of town. Meanwhile, Ricky is given permission to redecorate his half of the bedroom---much to David's dismay.
The way that Thorny goes about threatening to sue Ozzie is funny:
"Of course, it'd be a dirty shame to waste this lovely weather in a musty old courtroom. I think my old friend Judge Hopkins is on the bench. The man you beat in the playoffs at the Rotary Club golf tournament. You know, the one you accused of kicking his ball out of the rough? Good old `Sorehead' Hopkins?"
Originally aired on 28 January 1955 (Season 3, Episode 14).
Don't bother downloading the h.264 file; the Cinepack file from which it is derived is smaller.
Just want to make it clear this episode is incomplete...original running time was 25 minutes.
I feel I should point that out, I hope that is OK.

How Many Bedrooms In That House?
OK. There are just two kids. And, like the Cleaver boys, it's obviously a house with many bedrooms (at least 3 in each case - maybe more) and the boys have to share a room??
I never could figure that out.
Thorny is bitchier then usual in this episode.

Quite right Michael,the set used for this show was a carbon copy of the Nelsons house,and the outside shots of it were indeed the actual 1916 built home they lived in.It has 4 bedrooms, so its a good question why the boys shared a room! I guess it was in the script to make them appear as an average family!

If the house is so big on the wide shot how come the boys have to share a bedroom?
